Many individuals suffer from excessive sweating, which can cause discomfort and embarrassment. However, what many people might not know is that they are suffering from Hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating. People with Hyperhidrosis will often soak through their clothing, and regular antiperspirants won’t work well for those with this condition.
Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport can be used to help eliminate excessive sweat for a period of time for a more comfortable and confident you!
Individuals who are tired of dealing with excessive sweating of their armpits, hands, or feet, and have tried noninvasive options with no results, may be able to benefit from Botox or Dysport for Sweat Elimination. Patients must be at least 18 years old be overall healthy.
Normally, the nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body cools itself. However, for in people with Hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.
Neuromodulators treat severe sweating by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands. During the procedure, we will inject about 50 units into each armpit. The more units that are injected, the longer the drying effects tend to last.
Because everyone breaks down neuromodulators differently, the duration of your results may vary. Typically, patients can enjoy results for about 3-6 months before more injections are needed.
At BioSpa® we will take your individual sweat elimination goals into account to create a unique plan of action.
During your sweat elimination treatment, the neuromodulator will be injected just below the surface of the skin using a fine syringe. You will likely receive several injections that form a grid pattern on the area of concern.
There is no downtime required following Botox/Dysport injections for sweat elimination. However, you may be asked to schedule a follow-up appointment to check and touch-up and missed spots.
It typically takes between two and seven days for you to stop sweating in the treated area, and two weeks for total dryness.
At BioSpa® we also offer miraDry treatments for sweat elimination in the underarms.
The first step towards treating your Hyperhidrosis is to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, we will discuss your medical history and your sweat elimination goals. If you are interested in learning more about Botox/Dysport for sweat elimination, contact our office today.
